“Limited parking and could be cleaner”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The hotel is located in downtown just a block from the baseball park which was awesome. The lobby is bright and welcoming. The room itself is ok but the bathroom was not very clean. I found several hairs in different spots in the shower and bathroom. The heater didn't work so well. In the morning the front desk is also the van driver, so no one could answer the phone when I called down. Breakfast is basic nothing hot, rather all cold food.

We stayed a short night here as we arrived late and had to be at the airport VERY early the next morning. I thought the staff was friendly. The room was TINY, the bathroom could have been cleaner. The shower may have been falling apart. . . and the tile was kind of dirty. One side of the hotel is in a scary part of town, but you wouldn't know it from looking at the way the main entrance faces. For a short night, it was OK, but I don't know if I would stay again given the selection of much nicer hotels in Omaha.

Our trip started with arriving only to find the type of rooms they guaranteed weren't available after all. They told us they did have some like we wanted but were holding those for someone else. Never mind that we called over 1 month prior to prearrange it all. After much haggling they did offer to give us an extra room. During check in we were never told anything about parking. When we arrived back at the hotel at 9pm the parking lots were all full. That of not only the Fairfield bit also what appeared to be that of the Holiday Inn Express next door. We pulled in a spot someone was leaving out of not noticing that hanging from a rope 3 inches from the ground about 6 spaces down was a sign that said no overnight parking or your vehicle would be towed. Of course we walked out the next morning to find this. We went back in to a very unhelpful weekend desk attendant with an attitude. Yes, I was upset but she was not trying to make it better and just kept saying there was nothing she could do. She supossedly didnt have a number even. Once we found the number we called to find it was going to cost me $200.50 to get it out and really they were closed until Monday at 9am so only if she had a driver going by the office could I get my vehicle. The hotel in no way offered to assist with getting my vehicle back. They wouldn't even let me cash a check when their ATM decided not to work. When I checked in neither I nor my parents who were also staying there were told anything about where to parlor rather not to park. Yet, the tow company told me they are suppose to tell customers or have something up in their lobby indicating people will get towed if they park in certain places.

My recommendation, just don't stay here unless you want to risk being stuck for extended days. Go somewhere else. The tow company said the Holiday Inn Express gives a tag to put in your car. Seems like a quick easy fix but one the Fairfield obviously doesn't care about.

I have stayed in a number of Omaha hotels and this was hands down the warmest, friendliest hotel I have been in for years...anywhere! I had an early arrival and checkin...no problem! Every time I went by the desk someone greeted me. One of the ladies who serviced my room wrote me a thank you note! Amazing. The only negative on this trip was one front desk person's response when I came in late one night and there were NO parking spots for guests. She suggested I could park in a parking garage blocks away and walk back (at night). Not a good solution. A young man intervened and found me a spot. Honestly, the hotel was quiet, clean and great in every way. Would stay again in a minute.

I traveled here 3 times in the last two months. Shuttle van is timely. I have NO complaints except for the last ten minutes of my stay. I was given a late checkout of 12:30 pm which was agreeable. However at 12:22 pm housekeeping knocked on my door. I was packed and dressed to leave and just finishing tidying up. When I opened the door mgmt was there with another guest. Mgmt asked if I had a 12:30 checkout and I said yes. What annoyed me was the fact that another guest was with her as if to hurry me to leave. I thought that was atypical of service for that hotel. As I was leaving wouldn't you know that guest was in the lobby waiting for the room I was in. I believe it could've been handled differently is all. How much do I travel? Diamond with Hilton, gold with Marriott.

Can't say enough good things about the staff and their excellent shuttle service to the airport and downtown area during a 4 night stay. A cancelled flight meant we had to ask for a late checkout, which was granted and they stored our luggage. Easy walk to the various downtown event venues. Breakfast was limited but I never went hungry. The king suite room was large and clean. Nice sized bathroom. My only issue with the hotel was the bed comfort: it was lumpy and sagged in the middle. We mentioned this to the staff at the end of the visit, and they stated they would see to it. We stay in Marriotts all the time and overall I found this new property very similar to the Springhill Suites. But if Marriott is differentiating their hotel lines by the quality of the mattresses, then I will avoid the Fairfields in the future. It just isn't worth a few dollars for a bad night's sleep.

Room Tip: Try to get on the front of the hotel rather than the back. The train goes right beside the back roo...

I travel to Omaha, NE on a regular basis, and due to a large city wide event, found myself at the Fairfield Inn, located in downtown Omaha for the first time. Initially, I was disappointed with the lack of restaurant options, poor sleeping quality and rooms. There is one sports bar within walking distance - the food is as you might expect, cheap prices, but low quality. The hotel is located right next to a busy street - and you hear police cars all through the night. Finally, the lobby has undergone renovation, but the rooms remain in 90's style decor. The second night I endured an incident I will never forget... I had a fellow colleague pick me up for dinner (at 6:30pm)- on our way out of the parking lot, an intoxicated man was banging on the car window asking for money. At 8:30pm, when I returned to the hotel, the entire building was on "lock down" and you were required to use your key card to enter the lobby. I would not recommend this location to anyone, nor will I ever stay there personally again.

Thank you so much for your review of your January stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Omaha Downtown. We truly value your feedback and comments like yours enable us to improve the quality of our product and services on a daily basis. I’m disappointed to learn that you were inconvenied by a pan handler and not made aware of the restaurant offerings near our property.

We take the safety and security of our guest seriously. On a nightly basis we lock our main entrance at 11pm and if needed we do lock the main doors earlier again if there is a safety concern that we are addressing. In addition we do have security cameras that are monitored and a Night Manager that addresses any safety concerns. We do wish we would have known at the time when you were approached in the parking lot as we would have handled this situation immediately.

Additionally, we do have some great restaurants within walking distance to our hotel: The Old Mattress Factory, Goodnight's Pizza, and The Union Pizzeria Bar and Grill and Blatt Beer and Table. Also as you mentioned, we are happy to shuttle guests to restaurants within a 3 mile radius of Fairfield as well. Sorry to hear we did not direct you to any locations within walking distance on your recent stay with us.

This is great feedback for our hotel team and we will be sure to share your comments with them. Thank you again for your time in completing a review from your stay with us! We hope you will give our property another chance. I would personally like to offer you a complimentary upgrade we hope to see you back again soon!
